Parks and Gardens, Churches, Brick Gothic

The High Gothic Cistercian monastery church from the 13th century is seeking to be accepted as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

On the "European Route of Brick Gothic" in northeastern Germany, near the old Hanseatic city of Rostock, is the Bad Doberan Minster, the High Gothic church of the former Cistercian monastery built in the late 13th century.
Founded in 1171, the monastery, as the first monastery in Mecklenburg and the main princely burial place, already had the highest political and historical significance in the Middle Ages.
Through its colonization activities, it was of great importance for the regional cultural and economic development of Mecklenburg and, moreover, became a center of the Christian faith in the state. The special significance of the monastery was decisively reflected in the construction and furnishings of the Gothic cathedral, which was built in the late 13th century. The interior decoration was largely spared from the turmoil of war, iconoclasm and renewal phases. No other Cistercian monastery church in Europe has preserved richer original furnishings. Remarkable among the abundance of furnishings are the high altar as the oldest winged altar in art history (around 1300), the monumental rood screen crucifix altar (around 1360/70), and the funerary sculpture of the Danish queen Margaret Sambiria (+1282).
